Willingly, but what about your loyal followers on Fib.net. Might just start a revolution, they might black ball you!

Not really, I reckon I have 2 options. The most likely is getting it certified, which doesn't actually cost that much as although it's 30 foot long, it has no cabin so is classed as a sports/ski boat.

Or I can have it as a race boat, which is exempt from certification!

Feck me, not arrived in the country yet and already the speed is increasing!

Although perhaps on the right day, with the correct props, bit more trim, low on fuel, 10 knot tide etc it may well exceed that!
